The surgery provides a comprehensive travel clinic service both to our own patients and on a private basis to the general public.
We are a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre and can provide travellers with up to date vaccination information based on their specific destination(s). The Travel Clinic is run by our practice nurses. If you wish to book an appointment please contact reception.
Reception will book an initial consultation for you with the nurse. The nurse will carry out a review of your travel plans and advise you on the recommended vaccinations and costs involved.
You will need to complete a travel assessment form prior to seeing the nurse in order that your travel plans can be determined and recommendations can be made. If you have booked an appointment in person then please ask for an assessment form at Reception and complete it and bring it with you to your appointment.
If you have booked an appointment by telephone, you can either download and print the form by following the link below and complete it and bring it with you to your appointment. Or you can attend 10-15 minutes ahead of your appointment time and ask at Reception for the form and complete it while you wait to be called to your appointment.
Travel Assessment Form
The initial consultation is provided free of charge to patients who are registered with the practice. A £15.00 consultation fee is payable by patients not registered with this practice in addition to the cost of any vaccines.
Please note that payment for travel and private services can only be made by cheque or cash. We DO NOT have facilities to accept credit or debit cards at present.
A comprehensive website with travel information can be found here;
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
